Join us for the first ever HOPE Youth Corps to the beautiful country of Fiji. Amidst the natural beauty is a largely rural population where many live in poverty with limited access to health care, education and social services. The two week program begins with a weekend orientation in Nadi and then a road trip across the main island to the capital city, Suva.
In Suva we will be working on a variety of activities based around an orphanage which will include: conducting classroom teaching with the children, painting various parts of the school, setting up a new library as well as spending play time with the children. In the evenings we will be with the church in Suva, encouraging the different ministries. On the second week we will move to a village outside Suva for a community service program. This will include different projects working with the locals: the construction of a play area, painting, light building work, playing and reading with the children plus immersing ourselves in the culture by living in the village. We hope you can join us and be a part of a once in a lifetime experience in Fiji!
Fees and payments
As with anything, costs and sacrifice are involved and it goes without saying for these HYC programs. Costs will include a registration fee per person (which will be differ for each program) and payment for plane tickets. I would encourage everyone who is interested to attend a program to start saving money or even put on fundraisers now! It is worth it.
The cost of the 2015 HOPE Youth Corps Fiji is A$1650 plus airfares to Nadi, Fiji. Airfares typically cost between A$600 to A$900 from the east coast of Australia. Please book return flights to Nadi as soon as you are registered as flight costs go up quickly. Plan to arrive on Friday December 4th or early on Saturday December 5th as we have an orientation day on that day! For those coming from the USA, you will need to leave no later by the evening of December 3rd due to time zone (day change).
